Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex
The exhibition, guest curated by Dan Howard-Birt Curator of artistic programmes at Stour Valley Arts, will feature 100 selected artworks by artists and young people, and will be open just 100 hours between 19 June and 6 July 2014.
Through this 100 project, we aim to plant 100 trees along London Road in Brighton, to root a creatively inspired landscape in the local area. In order to do this, we need to raise £100 per tree. Can you help us? You could sponsor a tree, whether as a business, school, local inhabitant or friend. You could buy one of our artworks, each of which will be priced at £100. £50 will go to the artist and £50 will be put towards our tree planting scheme.
We would love for each tree to represent a partnership between an artist, the person buying an artwork and a local contributor. A trio of guardians helping to restore environmental degradation through art.As well as featuring work by professional artists, some of the artworks will be created by school children from local schools including Dorothy-Stringer High School, as well as youth groups in Brighton.This project is in association with Earth Restoration Service ERS, a registered charity that helps children in schools learn about the environment, planting trees and creating wild-flower meadows in order to restore their local degraded habitats.Please contact us at the gallery on firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a list of the artworks on sale and to enquire about tree sponsorship.
